Bhubaneswar: The visitors to Nandankanan Zoo will now have to pay Rs 40 as an enhanced entry fee from April 1 (Sunday) which is the fourth revision of fee in the last seven years.
Though the entry fee is being revised several times, the zoo visit for the economically weaker sections seems to be a big deal.
As per the revision, anyone above 15 years will have to pay Rs 50 towards entry fee while other fees including levy on still camera, digital camera, walk-through aviary, use of toilets and drinking water have been waived.
The entry fee of the animal park and the adjacent botanical garden was earlier enhanced to Rs 40 to Rs 25 on June 1, 2017.
The zoo authorities said the enhancement will generate more resources for the park which has been investing more and more infrastructure and visitor amenities.
